SAY "NO" TO POULTRY CAFOS
Red Boiling Springs Community Meeting


TERRY SPENCE of Socially Responsible Agricultural Project (SRAP)

Local resident in her mid 70's showing the view from her home.
She showed me the rash on her neck and spoke about the horrible smell and her stinging eyes from the chemicals.

The local residents of this small community are being squashed by big corporate factory farming.
They are polluting their environment, making them ill and destroying their home values. Red Boiling Springs is just one community in crisis.
Please help stop factory farming. You can start by not buying their products that also harm you and your children.
